Scientists at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory and the University of Washington (UW) have built the most comprehensive single-cell map of embryo development in any animal to date, using the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) as its model.
The researchers profiled open chromatin from nearly 1 million cells and RNA from 500,000 cells from overlapping time-points encompassing fruit fly embryogenesis.
Said UW's Diego Calderon, who taught a neural network to predict the developmental time for each cell, "This method allows you to zoom in to any part of this embryogenesis timeline at a scale of minutes."
